, president obama's talking about the law's benefits. highlighting one woman's story. >> she was one of the 3.1 million young people that this law helped cover because they could join their parents' plan. and that means that when she was diagnosed with a potentially deadly autoimmune disorder she got the care she needed. in the letter she wrote, i'm grateful because the affordable care act saved my life, saved my family from bankruptcy and gave me a future. >> this law is saving lives. how does the republican national committee counter that? quote, the white house is trying to woo young people, really? it's offensive that the democrats think that they can make things right with a social and some warm up talking points. i'll tell you what's offensive, when the republicans call the website president obama's katrina or that when obama care is terrorizing the country, or when a group backed by billionaires used a creepy uncle sam to try to scare young people not to get insurance. that was offensive, but helping millions of americans get insurance is working, and they can't handle it. joining me n
is also freaking out. >> we were talking a few minutes ago about obama care. and you mentioned it's the law of the land. if it's the law of the land, the president shouldn't keep ignoring the law. a president under a constitutional system doesn't have the ability to pick and choose which laws to follow and that's the same pattern you see in dictatorial society where it says ignore the law, go with the power of the president instead of the written law. >> the president's a dictator. you know, they're running out of talking points when they turn to fear. and now creepy uncle sam is back. the group backed by billionaires is again trying to scare young people from buying insurance. so why the freakout? because the law is working. 27,000 people enrolled in health care plans through the federal website just on tuesday. 56,000 signed up over three days. and the demand's even higher. more than 3.7 million people visited the site this week. these are real people who are getting covered. >> helen signed up for the market place wednesday. she's a single mom who's self-employed and putting he
president obama's competence, but you're writing about something else he said yesterday. listen to this. >> i talked to one insurance company today that a third of their enrollees are over 60 years of age. those are the people signing up. and the folks who can keep their plans because they're lower cost will now. and the folks who are going to get into these exchanges are probably going to be sicker, older, and as a result premiums are even going to go higher. >> what's he really saying? >> first of all, he's again talking about the republican base. the older, white people, many of them whom are moderate income or working class who are struggling. and he's lamenting the fact that finally these 60-something people, 55-year-olds can get health insurance when they couldn't before. now, we're not talking about poor people. by and large they're eligible for medicaid in many places. we're talking about presumably working people, presumably many of whom vote republican. so you see the mean spiritedness of it that these people who have been suffering. too young for medicare, waiting to get to m
on getting rid of president obama. impeach him, they say. and no issue has driven this impeachment talk more than the president's signature achievement, health care. forget that it's starting to help millions of americans, it's an impeachable offense. >> our next guest says the effects of the president's actions over the years rises to the level of an impeachable offense. >> an impeachable offense. granted, that's fox news, but it might as well be the republican party. today the house gop held a hearing on the president's failure to execute the nation's laws. during it, congressman darrell issa, a man who's been on a witch hunt against this administration from day one actually compared the president to nixon. and this birther congressman came right out with it. >> we've also talked about the "i" word, impeachment, which again i don't think would get past the senate in the current climate. >> am i missing anything? >> here's what you're missing. you have no grounds to impeach the president. and let's be honest. this isn't just about health care. oh, no. that's one of the reasons they want to
, congresswoman. >> if you want to talk about a war on women, look no further than this health care law. >> that's right. the gop wants you to believe president obama's health care law is the real war on women. oh, the irony. especially since just last week we learned that gop men are being tutored on how to talk to women. and according to a staff at one of those meetings, quote, some of these guys have a lot to learn. where would they possibly get that idea? >> if it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. >> even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that god intended to happen. >> the incidents of rape resulting in pregnancy are very low. >> well, maybe they can get some pointers on how to talk to women from the real boss of the party. listen to what he said today. >> -- yourself staring looking at, casually glancing at a woman. but you know that it's now socially taboo. you shouldn't be doing it. and you think everybody is noticing you doing it and condemning you in their minds. you walk up to the woman and say,
